cut funding increase fees and the cut educational visa’s good job tories….

Several universities have warned they may be forced to close science and engineering courses if the government limits visas for foreign students.Sixteen university vice-chancellors have written a joint letter to the observer saying the plans would have a profound effect on university income.They want Home Secretary

Theresa May to drop a proposal to restrict visas.She wants to raise the English language requirement and make it harder for people to come to the UK.

The coalition government has committed itself to reducing net migration from 196,000 to the “tens of thousands” by 2015.

Now that it effects two of the STEM subjects they take notice- what about the non existent funding for Art and Humanities?
